Van Bronckhorst: ‘I want to be the Netherlands coach’

Giovanni van Bronckhorst (46 years old), former Dutch left-hander of FC Barcelona between 2003 and 2007, has acknowledged in statements to NOS that he wants to become the new Netherlands coach after the farewell of Frank de Boer as a result of the premature KO in the second round of the Eurocup. It would be the third consecutive coach with a Barça past because Ronald Koeman preceded the aforementioned De Boer.

“It is an ambition for me to be the coach of Orange. I was a part of it for fourteen years, from 1996 to 2010. It was a great honor. And it would also be an honor for me to be the coach of the Dutch national team. If it will happen later or not, I do not know, “explained the former coach of the Feyenoord (won one Eredivisie, two Cups and two Super Cups) and from Guangzhou R&F from China, a club from which he already dissociated himself in December 2020, although he also admitted that he has not yet discussed the matter with the technical director of the Netherlands Federation, Nico-Jan Hoogma.

106 caps as a player, Van bronckhorst aspires to be the coach of Barcelona Frenkie de Jong Y Memphis Depay.
